The Early Mays, like many other touring musicians, are staying off the road for their own health and safety as well as that of their fans and others. We will reschedule this show as soon as their travels bring them back to the Midwest and schedules align.
The Early Mays (Emily Pinkerton and Ellen Gozion) "...bring traditional and original material to spectacular life" (Cindy Howes, Folk Alley, WYEP) with Appalachian-inspired songs built on deep country sensibilities, masterful singing and a sweet old-time sound. They burst on to the folk scene in 2014 with a #2 debut on the National Folk-DJ Charts: an eponymous album where fiddle, banjo and guitar are the backdrop to heart-melting harmony vocals. Most recently, they took home the blue ribbon in the Neo-Traditional Band Competition at Clifftop 2016 (The Appalachian String Band Music Festival), appeared on NPR's Mountain Stage in 2017, and hit the #1 position on the folk charts with their latest release, "Chase the Sun."
There is an unsurpassed magic that springs from their entwined and entrancing vocal harmonies. The Early Mays love the camaraderie of the studio, the road and rehearsals, and you can feel the gratitude radiate from whatever stage they are on. You'll always leave a show carrying a little bit of that warmth away with you.
